Properties and Applications

Kombucha, also known as tea mushroom, is a slightly alcoholic functional beverage, which is made by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture or SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast).  Depending on the type of the tea used, Kombucha’s taste ranges between sparkling apple cider and champagne. The drink is broadly categorised as:

  • Organic
  • Non-organic

Kombucha tea is available in various different flavours like regular/original, fruits, herbs and spices, flowers, and others. Manufacturers are experimenting with new flavours like a blend of flowers, fruits and herbs and spices, catering to the emerging preferences of a large proportion of consumers. It is thought to have several health benefits like detoxification, joint care, maintaining a healthy digestion, strengthening of immune health and cholesterol reduction.

Kombucha tea is accessible widely in supermarkets/hypermarkets, convenience stores, health stores, and through online retailers, among others. The beverage is proving to be especially popular in the retail and institutional segments of the emerging markets due to changing food habits, increasing incomes and urbanisation.

Market Analysis

Rising health awareness among potential consumers combined with increasing cases of chronic and lifestyle related diseases are the primary industry drivers. The acceptance of the product by consumers in key markets who have started consuming the product in an almost regular basis has also been a catalyst for the market with major manufacturers taking note of the rising demand. Consumer preference for healthier probiotic food has provided a further impetus to the market.

The easy accessibility of kombucha tea via various supermarkets and convenience stores is also a major driving factor. Due to changes in lifestyle and increasing urbanisation, the number of cafes and restaurants are growing in both emerging and mature markets. Thus, cafes are increasing becoming spaces where consumers can not just socialise but also partake in kombucha tea, adding to the growth of the market.

While kombucha tea was historically consumed in Eastern Europe, Russia and Japan, the recent emergence of the drink is driven by an extensive demand in Western countries with a shorter kombucha tea drinking history. However, the beverage is also seeing a rising demand in emerging markets like Middle East, Eastern Europe, and South East Asia, among others. Latin America and Asia Pacific are currently the fastest growing markets globally, owing to changes in food habits, rise in urbanisation and increase in disposable incomes.
